Check out the new TVC from Vodacom.
Not sure on the exact details but presumably from Draftfcb Johannesburg.

It’s fun to watch, but what on earth is the purpose of it?
It’s not supported by a campaign or even delivering a valuable message of any kind in my opinion…
Yeah I agree – nice to watch but perhaps there is a message we’re missing? Anyone from Vodacom care to explain? I’m sure it’s something like Vodacom brings the party or….
Any credits? Director? Creatives? Production house?
Any credits? Director? Creatives? Was there a director and were there creatives involved, or is this one of those client whims done by someone’s cousin?
Think it was made by Ola! Films. http://www.olafilms.tv/
What agency does Vodacom?
Vodacom ads make me want to barf; nothing new here.
@curious, some things we just find online without it being sent to us by the agency. If that happens we unfortunately have no details. Should we receive it we will happily update the post.
That is awful. No wonder they didn’t give you credits!
Vodacom has way too much money. What a waste.
But hey, the meerkat series of adverts apparently did wonders for sales. *shudder*
Cringe worthy. Vodacom just can’t seem to get it right.
This is NOT the final version. It’s missing VO and title, and did not flight like this. Can’t help but wonder where you got this from…we’ll supply the final version so at least the comments can be scathing AND relevant.
Hey Erin, with a different voice over and tittle it must be a completely different production, no doubt -we’ll have to eat our words. Reveal the names of those involved while you’re at it.
Hey Erin, we found this on the Youtube account of the production company Ola! Films. Happy to replace with an updated correct version if you can supply us?
Saw the ad on TV last night, if I remember correctly the message at the end of the ad is ‘Life’s cooler connected to the Vodacom family’. It’s then followed by a voice over saying ‘Who’s your daddy?’. Does this make a difference to your opinions?
I also hadn’t heard that “Who’s your daddy?” voice over until I saw the ad on TV. It just makes it that much worse, if that’s possible. That this isn’t tounge-in-cheek freaks me the hell out. Vodacom are consistently marketing themselves as that stupidly naive try-hard kid that nobody wants to be friends with because their breath reeks of vomit and snot is hanging from their nose.
Hi All, this has been updated with the VO.
Anyone care to share their thoughts?
Hi Johann, sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Still not a Grand Prix winner…
Utter, self-indulgent, self-important, vacuous, pompous rubbish from a company that is about as cool as Klippies and coke. My sympathies are with Ola Films who likely saw the pay check and lost all sense of propriety.
I like it – and I think it has a very definite message – it’s cool to be part of the Vodacom family …
And about the V/O – I like that too. The implication is surely that Vodacom’s your Daddy … and a very cool Daddy at that …
Lee if you think Vodacom is your (cool) Daddy, life is surely going to offer some unpleasant surprises.
Or you are from FCB. Nothing else explains it.
Vodacom has an edge! This is a cool ad! Quite Honestly SA has some the best ad campaigns in the world! I’ve been to the US and television ads there leave a lot to be desired. And yes Vodacom has indeed achieved their goal. People are talking about it, good or Bad, people are talking about it! Whether that will translate into revenue remains to be seen……..

WTF ? DADDY WHO WHAT WHY WHEN what is this ad trying to SAY ?????
